3 Activity 17 Balancing Forces If you were either Orville or Wilbur Wright, and it came time to design a flying machine with an engine, where would you place the engine and where would you place the pilot? Do you think that the pilot should sit up or lie down on the wing? Don t forget that there had been numerous crashes in the brothers gliders over the past 3 years. Give some serious thought to the reason or reasons for your decision. The drawing below is a top view of the lower wing of the 1903 flying machine. Draw where you would put the pilot and the engine. Back of wing Front of wing 1. What are the advantages in the way you placed the engine and pilot? 2. What problems do you think might be created with your placement? 3. Does your pilot sit up or lie down? Why? 4. Circle the direction that each propeller needs to turn to create the least amount of torque (twisting) of the aircraft. Learning to Fly: The Wright Brothers Adventure 30 EG GRC

4 Activity 18 Center of Gravity In constructing their 1903 Flyer, the Wright Brothers chose to place the engine on the wing next to the pilot. They felt that this would be safer for the pilot because the engine would not land on him if the flyer crashed. The problem that this created for them was one of balance. Neither Wilbur nor Orville weighed as much as the engine, and the wings needed to be level in order to have control of the plane. Try the following activity to see how to solve the problem: Take a string and tie it around a 12-inch ruler in the exact middle. Now hook two paper clips together to represent the pilot and four paper clips together to represent the engine. Open up one of the end paper clips on each group as shown so that they can hang on the ruler (you can also cut the paper clip to size with a wire cutter). Hook the groups on either side of the center and then slide the paper clips along the ruler until the ruler hangs level. When the ruler is level, the total weight of one set of paper clips times the distance from the center is equal to the total weight of the other set of paper clips times their distance from the center. Write down the inch readings for each group of clips. Two paper clips set at inches from the center Four paper clips set at inches from the center Since one group weighs twice as much as the other group, it should only be half as far from the center. Check the inch marks and see if this is true. The Wright Brothers needed to stay near the center of the plane in order to control it, so rather than move farther out on the wing to balance the engine, they made the wings on the engine s side of the plane 4 inches longer than on the pilot s side. This caused extra lift force on that side to counteract the extra weight of the engine and keep the wings level! You can simulate this by moving the four-paper-clip weight 1/4 inch farther away from the center so things are no longer balanced. Now, instead of moving the two-clip weight to rebalance, move the location of the string holding the ruler until everything is back in balance. Did you move the string toward the two-clip weight or the four-clip weight? Cut hanger clip Two clips Four clips Learning to Fly: The Wright Brothers Adventure EG GRC 31

5 Activity 19 How Far Did They Fly? Materials Wooden ice cream sticks or craft sticks Tape measure Stopwatch or watch with a second hand 1. Have each person put his or her name on a wooden stick to use as a marker. 2. Go outside to the playground, a large field, or a baseball diamond and choose a starting point. This could also be done indoors in a gym or long hallway. 3. Each person takes a turn at placing their marker where they think 120 feet from the starting point would be, the distance of the Wright Brother s first flight. (These should all be placed along the same line from the starting point. You may want to lay a very long string down first to use as a guide, or you could use the foul line of a baseball field. Or each person could walk toward the same distant object.) Once placed, each person should stay by his or her marker so no one else steps on it. 4. When all the markers are in place, use the tape to measure off exactly 120 feet from the starting point and determine whose marker was the closest. Also, measure the distance each person was from the 120-foot mark and record these results in the table below. Once measured, be sure to remove all the sticks. 5. It took Orville 12 seconds to fly 120 feet, with Wilbur running alongside the airplane as it launched. See if you can run this fast. Time how many seconds it takes each person to run 120 feet and record the results Name Distance from Time to 120-foot mark run 120 feet Learning to Fly: The Wright Brothers Adventure 32 EG GRC

6 Questions 1. Whose stick was the closest to the actual 120-foot mark? Do you think this is a very far distance to fly? 2. Could the Wright Brothers have flown... A. From home plate to first base on a baseball field? B. From home plate to the outfield wall of the nearest professional baseball stadium? C. From one wing tip of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet to the other? D. From one goal line to the other goal line on a football field? 3. Make a graph showing the distance from each person s marker to the actual 120-foot mark of the first flight. Did the group make good estimations of the distance? Find the average distance from the 120-foot mark. 4. Make a graph showing how long it took each person to run 120 feet. Did the group run faster than the Wright Flyer flew? Find the average time for the group. Math challenge 1. Your car can easily go 60 miles per hour and a jet airliner can cruise at 600 miles per hour. If the Wright Brothers flew 120 feet in 12 seconds on their first flight, calculate their speed in miles per hour. Hint: To do this you need to change feet to miles by dividing 120 feet by 5280, the number of feet in 1 mile. Then you need to change 12 seconds to minutes by dividing by 60, the number of seconds in 1 minute, and then change minutes to hours by dividing your last answer by 60, the number of minutes in 1 hour. Now divide the number of miles by the number of hours to find speed in miles per hour. Learning to Fly: The Wright Brothers Adventure EG GRC 33
